Summer holidays are just around the corner. Here are some easy tips for clear, bright skin this summer so you can go makeup free in the sun.
Summer holidays are something we all look forward to. A bit of time off to kick back and relax. Take a dip in a pool and enjoy a little cheeky mid-day cocktail. We don't really want to be worrying about anything makeup related, bar wearing a good SPF when we're on holiday. So now seems like the perfect time to do a little, pre-holiday skin detox.
Here are some of our favourite tips for improving our skin that won't cost you a penny:
Reduce screen time
What's so bad about screen time? Surely scrolling through Instagram, taking a few selfies and replying to a few emails isn't the end of the world? Not really, but the blue light that's emitted from devices has been known to have adverse results on us. From lack of concentration, being unable to sleep (our brains register blue light as sunlight) to potential skin damage.
Yes, we've said it a million times but here it is again - our skin needs hydration to be healthy. Which means, water. During the past few months, our weather has been a little crazy. In Ireland, we're often exposed to changes in weather as well as central heating. All this can mess with the water levels in our skin.
To maintain a healthy balance always make sure you're drinking enough water, whether that means swapping one of your daily flat whites for a peppermint tea or just keeping a bottle next to your desk.
Facial massage is one of the easiest ways to give your skin a boost. It improves circulation, aids product absorption and can help improve firmness too. Not only that, but regular facial massage will also help to detox your skin which in turn, helps to combat breakouts and dullness.
We will always extol the virtues of sleep here at Beaut. It's good for your mind, body and of course, skin. It's not called beauty sleep for nothing. As we know, our complexion is one of the first places to show signs of lack of sleep. Dark circles, a lack lustre appearance and break outs are all commonplace when you're tired. So treat yourself to a few early nights and you'll start seeing the benefits in no time at all.
